Security cameras captured the moment of an explosion in New York on Saturday. The video shows passers-by running away from the explosion.

The bomb was made from a pressure cooker and it injured 29 people. A second similar bomb was found a block away. Police destroyed it.

The governor of New York promised to bring those responsible to justice.

Difficult words: passer-by (a person who is going past something), pressure cooker (an airtight pot in which food can be cooked quickly under steam pressure).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
